Book meme

I originally saw this on Amy's blogo but ignored it since she tagged a generic you and based on psychology I used the group theory (don't remember the actual name) that someone else would do it and since I wasn't specifically asked I could ignore (the theory is that if you are around a group of people and need help you are less likely to get it since individuals in the group will think someone else will help you). Jessica specifically tagged me, argh. Unfortunately for you guys I am at my desk and the only books I keep around her are reference type:
Rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

Book one was Debbie Bliss Essential Baby page 123 has a picture.
Book two was Clara Parkes The Knitter's Book of Yarn page 123 has a picture.
Book three is Margaret Radcliffe The Knitting Answer Book
Cases for circular needles come in several designs. Small booklets with see-through pockets for size are particularly handy to carry around with you. Hanging cases allow you to store cable needles without coiling them. (Kinky cables can be very annoying to knit with). Aint that the truth.

And now I tag:
Shelly (the other white meat)
Shelly (the old one-this could be your first ggyr post)
Barbara (scmom)
Carrie (humble)
Whoever just happened upon this while googling a problem with Photoshop

8 people are laughing with me:

Sorry :) Just trying to give you more things to post about!

wow. for all the grief i took about being a terrible blogger, (which i really was/am!!!) you sure went off and stole my title w/out so much as a nod my way. typical!

as far as the tag is concerned, i cannot post what was on page 123 in the book nearest to me. not appropriate reading material for a youth ranch blog. :) you can't blame me for this one. carla, my sis-in-law, told me to read this book our cousin recommended and let her know if it was any good. (carla hates to read.) i'll put it here on your risque, wild, and crazy blog.

This is from Redeeming Love:

She moved slightly. He looked at the slender column of her white throat and watched the steady pulse there. He longed to lean down and press his mouth to it. He wanted to breath in the scent of her.

I just read the back cover. I guess the author Francine Rivers, is a Christian author. Maybe page 123 is as racy as it gets. I guess I'll have to read to find out.

see new, nice, fun shelly. she entertains for a few days and then this. nothing. a meme yesterday and now a rerun allllllll day. very typical. it's how she rolls.

this was why i considered a reader's strike. i think she might be trying to get her numbers up w/ us having to check back multiple times a day.

fyi fellow readers, that second anonymous comment wasn't even mine.
love,
the keeping it real shelly

Shelly said...

oooo...I like the tactic. don't post for a while and getchyer numbers up! Hey, I like it! So that's how you've done it, aye, Regina?! I may have to "improvise" a bit!!

And to: keeping it real, Shelly...wow, nice quote from the book there. "...slender column of her white throat..." OOOOOOoooo...so descriptive [barf!] :O)

Shelly said...

okay I'm tearing here and i'm about to pee my pants as i type this. Regina, pay close attention, i think you may have to do something like this chick did to up your numbers...I can't find the words...maybe you'll have better luck!!! http://jlomowriter.blogspot.com/2008/01/jlo-debut-on-you-tube.html
